I'm Thinking of Ending Things

I'm Thinking of Ending Things ★★½

Vibed uncomfortably with Kaufman’s portrayal of the unfinished, continually redrafted emotional fictions of a frustrated inner life, but this is still some of his weakest and most enervating material, done no favors by the fact that his ideas are generally better interpreted than illustrated. Haven’t read the novel, but everything here squares with his predilection for writing unpredictably metamorphic women and tragically self-defeating men. Buckley is impressive.
